“Become” – #2 in the Be+ Series

Posted on Monday September 11th, 2017

Be Plus (series slide)

Clocking in at nearly 15 minutes, “Become” is one of my longer video messages.  I mesh my personal story and testimony using three scripture references to mark the second (and final) entry in the Be series.

Erma Tabernacle is “a place to believe, a place to belong, a place to become.”  The first two were addressed in the previous post.  The purpose of “Become” is to emphasize that God is calling us to be the BEST with His encouragement and equipping through the Holy Spirit.

This message was originally presented during September 10 ET worship.  The scripture reference (Psalms, Romans, 2 Corinthians) are noted in the video.

Daily Blessings,

“Believe & Belong” – #1 of Be+

Posted on Friday September 8th, 2017

Be Plus (series slide)

As noted in this video re-recorded message from September 3 Erma Tabernacle worship, the church’s tagline is “A place to believe. A place to belong. A place to become.”   This message examines the first two by looking at Hebrews chapter 10, verse 23 through chapter 11, verse 3 (Heb 10:23-11:3).  The series title is “Be ”

The second and final message in this Be series will be entitled simply “Become” and will be initially presented during September 10 worship, also Rally Day in the Tabernacle.

Daily Blessings,

“ROI – Return On Investment” (Eternal Healthcare #7)

Posted on Thursday August 31st, 2017

Here is the 7th and final message in the Eternal Healthcare series.  “ROI – Return On Investment” wraps-up with a core two-part question each person must decide: 1) is there/is there not eternal life, and 2) depending on the answer to #1, how does it affect everyday living? The core scripture is Luke chapter 19, […]

“Expect to Resurrect” – Eternal Healthcare #6

Posted on Thursday August 17th, 2017

Here is the next-to-last message in the Eternal Healthcare series.  But I guess messages on eternal life never truly end, right?  Using the Apostle Paul’s Letter to the Philippians (chapter 3, verses 12 through 21), “Expect to Resurrect” continues the importance of daily living with a heavenly perspective. This message was originally presented during August […]

“The Main Thing” – Eternal Healthcare #4

Using King Solomon’s book of Ecclesiastes in the Old Testament, “The Main Thing” offers hope in the midst of depression and despair.  This message has been re-recorded from July 23 worship at Erma Tabernacle and is the 4th in the Eternal Healthcare series. Depression is a rough subject.  Let us be thankful that hope is […]

“World v Will” – Eternal Healthcare #3

Here is the third message in the Eternal Healthcare series, re-recorded from July 16 worship at Erma Tabernacle.  “World v Will” addresses the issue of priorities, plain and simple.  Drawing upon First John chapter 2, verses 7 & 8 and 15 through 17 (1 John 2: 7 – 8, 15 – 17), we explore the […]

“The Wait Will End” – Eternal Healthcare #1

Posted on Wednesday July 5th, 2017

It is Summer 2017 and Erma Tabernacle is focusing on eternal life with the July/August series, “Eternal Healthcare.”  The goal is to live deeper in the present with an eye toward eternity.  Maybe the other way around is better – knowing we will live forever somewhere has to impact our everyday decisions. “The Wait Will […]
